Invisible joints the safe way
RAUKANTEX pro creates zero joints without compromise - permanently and sustainably
In the furniture industry, the advantages of RAUKANTEX zero-joint edgebands are well known: with our safe, patented, hygienic and clean RAUKANTEX pro edgeband, furniture pieces can be produced as if they were made of one piece.
A 100% adhesive-free functional layer is the basis for the permanently functional and optical zero joint on the finished component.
RAUKANTEX pro takes the design and quality of the finished component to a new level, and it’s so easy to work with!
Continuous changes in furniture manufacturing, for example the use of new materials, processing technologies, quality of surfaces and carrier materials, keep increasing the requirements on the quality of the RAUKANTEX pro processing process.
At REHAU, we are responding to these changes by continually refining our mixtures and materials to make sure we can meet specialised customer requirements. RAUKANTEX pro is available with functional layers for kitchens, bathrooms, living areas, doors and even outdoor applications.

NEW: The latest highlight for RAUKANTEX pro is a so-called OMR layer ("optimised moisture resistance"), which guarantees water vapour resistance. This means that dishwashers, extractor bonnets or damp rooms cannot harm the edgeband in the long term.
Perfection down to the last detail with RAUKANTEX pro OMR:
Permanently seamless. Easy to clean. Hygienic. Patented. Water vapour-resistant. Sustainable.
Why choose the invisible joint edgeband?
The seamless bond creates a permanent, functional invisible joint. The fusion of edgeband and board increases both the finished components' resistance to thermal distortion as well as the moisture and water vapour-resistance.
The functional layer is perfectly colour-coordinated with the decorative layer creating a flawless appearance with total seamless integration, which creates the impression of a solid material. It is prevented that the joint rubs off during day-to-day use thanks to the special hardness of the functional layer. Dirt in the joints is a thing of the past.
Various technologies can be used to process RAUKANTEX pro. The manufacturing process is reliable, stable and provides a high repeating accuracy. The maintenance effort required is lower directly in comparison to conventional edging as aggregates do not become contaminated.
Sustainability is an important part of REHAU's corporate strategy. RAUKANTEX also has a lot to offer here: RAUKANTEX eco is an edgeband that consists of 50 percent post-industrial PP recyclates. RAUKANTEX evo is based on non-fossil raw materials which do not require any additional crude oil. And the new water vapour resistant OMR functional layer of RAUKANTEX pro also scores in terms of sustainability: due to its melting point, approx. 25 percent less laser energy is required for activation during processing while the peeling strength remains the same
